On February 5th, Long-View collaborated with the Thinkery and with WonderLab to bring the acclaimed edu-documentary, Most Likely to Succeed, to Austin. The two film screenings we hosted at Alamo Drafthouse were sold out as an enthusiastic group of 400 Austinites came to learn more about transformation in schools and to hear directly from the Executive Producer of the film, Ted Dintersmith.
While in Austin, Mr. Dintersmith visited two schools and Long-View was on the list! Mr. Dintersmith observed the Long-View students at work, discussed the defining characteristics of high-quality education, and conversed about the Long-View Micro School model. Mr. Dintersmith is currently on a 50 state tour, raising awareness about the messages of his MLTS film and working towards supporting change agents at both the school and state levels.
Mr. Dintersmith noted he will remain excited to track Long-View's "amazing progress."
